My guest for The Happy Hour # 198 is Michelle McKinney. Michelle defines herself as a Dream Architect and she brings her 20-years experience working alongside senior executives at companies such as Starbucks, American Express, Fannie Mae and Zion, to help women design, construct and bring their God-given dreams to life. Michelle and her husband, Tony, reside in Maryland with their 4 children – Caleb, Mekhi, Anthony and Selah.

I knew Michelle and I would get along when I saw her dance onto the stage at Shine, and she brings her joy and energy to the show today – I know you're going to love it.

Michelle believes that every woman can fulfill her God-given purpose, and on today's show we talk about how women can discover those dreams and move through the restlessness, yearning, and transition of when God is transplanting us to something new. We discuss the struggle of finding contentment in a season instead of only focusing on what's next. I love her idea of keeping a journal to write down your wins each day – it's such a great way to celebrate and look back and see how God has been working in your life.

In the second half of the show we discuss one of my favorite topics – marriage. Michelle speaks about marrying for love and purpose. She says, “marriage is about partnership and being able to build something to advance God’s kingdom even more than what you could do alone.” Lastly, Michelle tells us about what is now my new favorite idea for a party – a bridal shower reboot for her 20th wedding anniversary!
